  • Put Babel boxes on your user page so others know what languages you can speak and indicate your graphic abilities.
  • All your uploads are stored in your personal gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page without embedding the image, type: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], which produces: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper
Nuvola filesystems trashcan full.png Made a mistake?
  • Did you want to rename or move a file? Simply upload the file again and mark the old one like this: {{bad name|correct name}}

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Spegelreflex!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

The 'Okänd' in the author field is a bad joke, right? The photo is signed, so of course the author is not unknown. --Martin H. (talk) 22:49, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Same applies to e.g. File:Abrenner.jpeg wich is also signed. Is it possible that all 'Okänd' information you ever wrote on this project is not based on research but simply your own guess without any research made? Remove such claims and leave the field empty, the author field is not a space for your personal opinion.
If you did research for a particular file and came to the conclusion that the author is unknown, write the sources confirming this finding on the file description or the file talk. --Martin H. (talk) 22:53, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
I don't know why you sound so pissed off. "Okänd" simply means that it I don't know who took the picture. Of course I've carefully checked the magazine for any photo credits but there are none.--Spegelreflex (talk) 12:28, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

I think you can use it without problems, you don't need to pay for this. Carefully read the license info, note that it is available under two
licenses and you can choose which one to use. The CC Attribution lic is probably the easiest to use.--Spegelreflex (talk) 11:52, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
